REASONS FOR AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2017 BETTING TIPS 

Novak Djokovic beat the new World No. 1 (Sir) Andy Murray in three sets in the final of the Qatar Open to claim the early bragging rights of 2017 last weekend and the Serb, a six-time winner of the Australian Open, has to be fancied to secure the first Grand Slam title of the year.

In contrast to Djokovic’s dominance down under, Murray has never been crowned Australian champion, having been a beaten finalist in Melbourne on five occasions, losing to Djokovic in the final in no fewer than four of those. In Murray’s five final defeats, he’s won just two sets, with both of those being tie-breaks.

Murray (7/4 with 888sport) may never have a better opportunity to claim a first Australian title, but the value looks to be with Djokovic given that he has such a great record in the tournament.

Stanislas Wawrinka (14/1 with Coral) won the title in 2014 and is perhaps the biggest threat to the top two, although Milos Raonic (20/1 with Skybet) also stepped up in 2016 and must be a contender for a major title this year. The Canadian was a semi-finalist in Australia last year and went on to reach the final at Wimbledon.

The Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov (40/1 with Paddy Power) beat Kei Nishikori (30/1 at 888sport) in the season-opening Brisbane International last week and might be worth an e/w punt.

Roger Federer (22/1 at BetVictor) and Rafael Nadal (14/1 with Betway) are both among the favourites, but they are now well past their prime and you have to believe that it would need a number of unlikely factors to come in to play for either to win the tournament.



The women’s event looks a much tougher call than their male counterparts in terms of the number of potential winners. Serena Williams (11/4 at 888sport) can never be discounted as she seeks a 23rd major singles title to surpass Steffi Graf and set a new record for the Open Era, but she’s now 35 years old and suffered a 2nd round defeat in the ASB Classic in Auckland after being out of action since September with a shoulder injury. She can’t be backed with any great confidence.

Angelique Kerber (4/1 at Sportingbet) is the defending champion and the current top-ranked player in the women’s game. She’s already suffered two early round defeats in 2017 though, losing to Elina Svitolina in the Brisbane international and Daria Kasatkina in the Apia international in Sydney.

There are cases to be made for a number of other players, including Agnieszka Radwanska (31/1 at 888sport), Simona Halep (12/1 at Coral), Dominika Cibulkova (28/1 with Betfred) and Garbine Muguruza (10/1 at Skybet). Madison Keys would have been a serious contender, but she misses out after undergoing wrist surgery last month, whilst two-time champion Victória Azárenka is out after giving birth to a baby boy in December.

Perhaps the name to keep an eye on is Karolina Pliskova. The 24 year-old Czech girl won her first Premier title in Cincinnati in 2016, and reached her first Grand Slam final the following month, losing to Kerber in the U.S. Open final. She won the Brisbane International title to start 2017 with a bang and has the hard-hitting game that could see her go a long way in Melbourne.
